Theory and Hazard Perception Test


When you have passed your theory test, you can apply for your practical test.  The theory test is made up of two parts, 50 multiple choice questions and a hazard perception test. You will need to pass both parts.


Theory and Hazard Perception training is available to you via your instructor and our Theory Test Pro website.  Our Theory Test Pro enables you to complete short tests, section test , full tests and hazard perception tests.  There are 14 sections to test your driving knowledge - Accidents, Alertness, Attitude, Documents, Hazard Awareness, Motorway Rules, Other Types of Vehicle, Road and Traffic Signs, Rules of the Road, Safety and your Vehiocle, Safety Margins, Vehicle Handling, Vehicle Loading,and Vulnerable Road Users.  To pass your theory test you need to answer correctly 43 out of 50 questions.


Driving test candidates are not able to use foreign language voiceovers and interpreters on their test but theory test pro has a translater for practice.  Click here for more information from the DVSA.


Our Theory Test Pro also has Hazard Perception videos.   There are 14 clips, 1 of the clips has 2 hazards.  The clips feature everyday road scenes, a developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed, direction or making you stop.  What you need to do is identify these as early as possible to get as high a score as possible (max 5 points per clip). To pass your hazard perception test, you need to score 44 points out of 75. 


82% of theory test pro users pass the theory test first time, the UK average is 41%.

TOP TIPS


  • Read the Highway Code and Driving the Essential Skills.  Complete short tests and section tests before tackling mock tests on our Theory Test Pro.
  • Nerves play a role on your theory test.  At home consistently score over 46 out of 50 on the theory section, and over 55 on your hazard perception and you are ready.
  • Arrive 20 minutes early and visit the toilet before you go in!
  • Don't forget your documents - you cannot take a test if you cannot present your driving licence photocard.
